On Friday I met with an engaged couple at an adorable wine bar in Soho on MacDougal called Rouge et Blanc. The atmosphere feels very colonial French and the staff gave very personal attention when selecting wine. The Sommelier, Thomas Cregan, who was not present at the time we were there, has more than 20 years of wine-tasting experience from the regions of France and he placed eighth in the Best Sommelier in America 2011 Competition!
My wine of choice was a glass of Chateau Respide-Medeville Graves Blanc 2009, a lovely crisp white wine. The food, although we didn’t eat, looked delightful! Their cusine is an interesting combination of French-Vietnamese.
